Just returned from my first trip to Canton Trade Days. It was excellent! When I decided to go I had mixed expectations. But I'm so glad I went.
I had limited time to spend there (one day) because my elderly grandmother went with me and she couldn't hold up to more than one day. Thank goodness for scooter rentals. That is one of the great things about this event. Anyone can rent a scooter or a push cart by the hour/day/weekend. In fact, if you plan to go, make sure you either plan to rent a push cart or bring your own bag on wheels. If not, you'll be making trip after trip to your car to unload your purchases!
Plenty to eat and drink scattered throughout, but don't plan to watch your diet. The food can only be described as carnival type food (corn dogs, walking fajitas, funnel cakes, fried Twinkies, ice cream, etc.).
If you really want to experience all Trade Days has to offer, plan to stay at least two full days. We arrived just before it opened and left when it closed the day we were there and had barely scratched the surface! In the event of bad weather, it still opens, but the outdoor vendors won't open. No worries because there are miles of indoor booths to visit. We didn't get to ANY of those while there. We wanted to visit the outdoor booths because we had beautiful weather starting out with rain forecast for the afternoon, but the rain never came. So we enjoyed the outdoor booths and decided to save the indoors for a future visit.
Men, you'll have plenty to look at. Don't shy away from this event thinking it's only for the ladies. You won't be disappointed!
